** On Holy Terra there is the Eternity Gate, a colossal chamber leading to the Sanctum Imperialis, where the Emperor Himself sits atop the Golden Throne. The Gate lies at the end of a mile-long aisle, the gargoyle-covered roof hangs half a mile overhead past clouds of incense and swarms of fluttering Cherubim, and the thousand steps leading to the portal take pilgrims through a forest of banners and standards from warriors over the past ten millennia. The Eternity Gate itself is large enough to accommodate HumongousMecha, while the Imperial Palace it stands in covers most of Europe.

* Among the structures planned for Hitler's new German capital included a dome many times larger than any ever built. How it would be built was never fully engineered. The central dome of the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Volkshalle Volkshalle]] was theorized to produce acoustics that would either render any speech unintelligible or magnify a speaker's voice to deafening levels, and would have been large enough to produce its own weather systems and indoor rain as the breathing and perspiration of its occupants precipitated. Since Berlin was built on swampland, the whole building would have sunk and/or collapsed under its own weight, but Hitler, being Hitler, decided to ignore this fact. Similarly, the new German Reichstag was built to almost comical dimensions, intended to impress visitors in the way parodied in ''TheGreatDictator''.

Added DiffLines:

* Not to be outdone, Stalin planned the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palace_of_the_Soviets Palace of the Soviets]] to have a domed audience chamber of similar scale to the ''Volkshalle'', but the exterior structure was to be even larger, with the dome surmounted by a skyscraper as big as the Empire State Building, with that topped by a statue of Lenin as big as the Statue of Liberty. This project never got further than a huge hole in Moscow before defeating the ''Wehrmacht'' became a greater priority, and the project died with Stalin. Also like the ''Volkshalle'', such a structure was pretty much impossible to construct, especially on Stalin's chosen site, the bank of the Moskva River.

* Las Noches in ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' is large enough to have its own sky, and extremely large towers. It's also literally the only building in that dimension, so it's not like they didn't have the space to do whatever they wanted.

** In "The Sword", the light well containing the sword itself. Arguably a JustifiedTrope, since the whole mission is a test to see if Garrett should be hired to steal the Eye. The area in which the Eye is located is somewhat similar to the area around the sword -- a levitating object with enemies guarding it below, but which is accessible from above.

*''Webcomic/{{Goblins}}'' likes this trope very much. Huge interiors can be found in basically any dungeon.

** In ''Film/RogueOne'', [[spoiler:Darth Vader]]'s fortress on [[spoiler:Mustafar]] has a huge, all-black chamber with a central platform suspended over a BottomlessPit... where a single guest is entertained for a two-minute conversation. In fairness, visitors are likely ''strongly'' discouraged.

* On a smaller scale, [[http://www.mcmansionhell.com/post/150135343136/flower-mound-tx some of the critics]] of [=McMansions=] point out the penchant of their builders for this trope, and the impracticality of it.

* Most most movies done by [[Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon Disney]], specially fairy tale-themed features. ''Disney/{{Cinderella}}'' and [[Disney/CinderellaIIDreamsComeTrue it's]] [[Disney/CinderellaIIIATwistInTime sequels]] is the largest offender, specially the King's Palace with its ridiculous high ceilings in rooms and corridors.

** The giant halls also prove to be a major issue when the dwarves unleash an EldritchAbomination: the Balrog Maia. The great halls allow it to move about with relative ease, seeing as how it's twenty times bigger than the whole Fellowship put together. The {{Literature}} of Creator/JRRTolkien suggests that the dwarves had trouble with honkin'-big dragons as well: Smaug from ''Literature/TheHobbit'' being obvious, but also Scatha the Wyrm, and other cold drakes.
